5 amazing corn mazes near Calgary to get lost in this fall

Sep 24 2019, 12:37 pm

Ahh, Fall.

That blissful time of the year when the scorching heatwaves of Calgary’s summer ebbs out to leave the land with crunchy leaves in bursts of orange, red, and yellow.

While it may seem like everyone is obsessed with all things pumpkin or pumpkin spiced, we believe that the humble corn maze deserves more attention.

After all, what better way to fall in love all over again — and test the strength of your navigation skills — than by getting lost with your partner in a huge corn maze.

So grab your special someone, a compass, and a pumpkin spiced latte (if you must), and head on over these corn mazes in and around Calgary.

The Calgary Farm Yard also consists of smaller (and bigger!) mazes for those who want to really test out their navigation skills, or maybe just have a relaxing evening among the corn stalks.
